Special Celebration!My husband and I were celebrating his recent career accomplishments at your establishment; we were welcomed with a glass of champagne to toast and a "congratulations" from the hostess. Very classy, special touch! Thank you!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPrinceton, NJExcellent food, friendly service, pleasant ambience - and they take reservations as opposed to many eateries in Princeton that do not.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMet expectationUpon arrival the restaurant was beginning to come to life. We were seated at arrival and greeted by our server. She was freindly and courteous. the food was delivered in good time however the entree order was incorrect. The food flavors were very good. It took too long to receive our check.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good (better than expected)We had a group of 6 on a busy Thursday night. We ordered some appetizers for the table, and most of us got a salad and a main course. Some had desserts. Menu selections offered us plenty of choice, and everything we ordered was fresh, very tasty and well presented. Franco helped us select a nice red wine. Service was excellent throughout. There was some nice live music - not too loud - and the ambiance was lively and friendly. I look forward to returning on our next visit to Princeton.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and Efficient!Enjoyed a great meal here on a busy Friday night. Food was delicious, although after a big lunch, I only had the cerviche. What I really admired was that the owners? managers? -- a man and a woman -- were constantly walking around the dining room keeping an eye on things. This adds a level of service you just don't see these days, even at the most expensive restaurants. When we were leaving, one of them caught me as I was going out the door to give me a parking coupon for the garage. I felt well-treated, and well-fed.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDining PleasureI was at Mediterra on a romantic second date on a Thursday night..nice bar scene. A three pc.latin band was playing. A very pleasant surprise. Service was exceptional, very courteous and prompt. Mojitos were great, a little sweet but I like them on the sweet side.
We had decided to dine inside, but we could still enjoy the view of the covered outdoor patio and fountain.
We shared the mussel appetizer..so delicious..wish we had a double on that! and more bread to soak up the sauce!
The Strip Steak was perfect for the entrée..
Will definitely return...next time I will try the outside dining.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Night OutI went to Mediterra simply because my guest had wanted to try it for a long time now. Must say, I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived to find a nice little restaurant, perfect for the meal I was hoping for. We sat outside, the ambiance was awesome, with a perfect soft lighting and a nice view of the town with the fountain right out front. My waiter was extremely attentive and friendly, and he also suggested a different beer for me which was terrific. I ordered the tagliatelle primavera, which was delicious, and my guest ordered the spring rigatoni, which she loved. The night was awesome and I can most definitely say that I will be back to Mediterra again.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goEvery time we go to Princeton, we go to Mediterra at least once, if not multiple times - it is always wonderful.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSmall portionsAmbiance great. Portions could be larger. Some staff new.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat cuisineThe menue was varied and attractive. Everyone was very satisfied with their selections and the portion sizes. Always had outstanding meals in several visits.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIts uncomfortably loud. FoodIts uncomfortably loud. Food was excellent. Great wine. Service was prompt but sloppy.
Other waiters kept bumping into my chair as they passed . Overall not what it once was.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good menuThe server was great. Bread and olive oil delicious. The menu was diverse enough to please a fish eater, a vegetarian, a big time carnivore, and a light eater. Fortunately it was too noisy to enjoy dinner conversation. Perhaps tables outside are better. Well priced for the quality if the food.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful meal in downton PrincetonWe had a wonderful evening meal, great spot overlooking Palmer Square in Princeton. Nearly ate outside but thought it might be a bit chilly, enjoyed the meal and service.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMRock solidMediterra is our favorite Princeton eatery. Always dependable to provide a unique and quality loaded meal. We have yet to have anything but good experience with this establishment.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day CelebrationWent to Mediterra to celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday night and was not disappointed! So many Mediterranean dishes and a good wine list also. Will be sure to come back during the week to try the tapas.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFoodSome of the appetizers and one of the entrees was very salty. Although the food was good, the additional salt ruin the dish5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined at Mediterra withWe dined at Mediterra with a group of 4, celebrating a friends' new job. The Mediterra staff was very kind and immediately arranged a table for us even though I had mistakenly made a reservation for the wrong hour. Our waiter chose some lovely wines for us, paired well with both our appetizers and entrees. I like the fact that the size of the meals at Mediterra are 'normal'... you leave with an overall satisfied feeling, having eaten quality-food. We topped our dinner off with a cheesecake, which we shared, and dessert-wines. Mediterra is definitely fit for foodies and special occassions. The decorations are tasteful and the noise levels moderate, also when sitting outside on the terrace in summer.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food -- good serviceA varied menu. Worth going back to experiment with what I missed.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA+As a NYC resident, I can be very picky when it comes to dining - especially outside of Manhattan. Mediterra ranks among the best of them. Food was excellent, service was outstanding - will most definitely be coming back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAs a chinese family, we don'tAs a chinese family, we don't like westen food before. But the first try at Mediterra is perfect. The food is delicious and the service is good, even my mother who reject any food othe chinese before feel well. //4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch better latelyI go to there a lot and recently, it has been better than ever. They have really hit their stride4/21/2013 12:00:00 AM6 Stars if it were possiblePrinceton's best restaurant by a long stretch. I cannot recommned it more enthusiastically for every category.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMy daughter's b.d. celebrationMy daughter's b.d. celebration turned out wonderfully. Food, service and managerial assistance were great. Will return.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMToo loud, but otherwise greatI come here a few times a month. As always food and service very good. The only downsite, it's too loud. Hard to cary a conversation. Not because there was large group next to us, there is just something about the acoustics of this place. One of the nicest places in Princeton to sit outside. Now they have a covered terras in case of weather increment.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food served al fresco.Very good food served al fresco. But the dessert order was so long in coming, we had to leave before it arrived.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur third time there. WellOur third time there. Well worth the trip fom Long Island, NY.
Attentive service with well informed staff. Hard to decide what to order and cleaned plates all around.
Looking forward to going back and dining outside.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy overall experience wasMy overall experience was great. The food was very good; my server was very friendly and attentive.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSolid every timeFriends from New York joined us for an early dinner at Mediterra and they were impressed by the excellent time we had. The variety of offerings on the menu is impressive, and a meal can be composed of full courses or a series of small plates. The restaurant was jam-packed at 5:30 and we had to leave at 6:40 for a 7:00 concert, and they made it happen. One caution: At first they tried to seat us at a terrible table in a dark back corner -- and I overheard a server say "Your table depends on the type of your reservation" (did he mean Open Table?)-- but when we refused that table we were moved to a beautiful place at the front of the restaurant near the window.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOn our recent visit, my wifeOn our recent visit, my wife enjoyed the halibut beautifully prepared la plancha style while I enjoyed two favorite appetizers, calamari and baby octopus. Our salads, Caesar and arugula were both excellent, as were my two glasses of Sangiovese and biscotti dessert. The taste, texture, and presentation of the octopus were near perfection while the calamari was very tasty albeit a bit chewy (not enough to send back, however).4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DiningReally enjoyed the intimate dining experience!

The service was perfect and I have to say that I find fewer and fewer restaurants that really "get" this aspect of the dining experience. We had arrived a little early and were promptly seated. Our friend was a little late. The waiter took good but nonintrusive care of us. And the food was terrific. The menu is small but everything we had was excellent. We had the mixed meze to start and two of us had past dishes (one with vegetables and the other bolongnese) and the third had salmon. We split a dessert of apple tart with ginger ice cream. The waiter noted a small gift I had put at our friends plate for his birthday and brought a chocolate dessert which he loved.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother thoroughly enjoyableAnother thoroughly enjoyable meal at one of our favorite spots.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI have always liked this restaurantI have always liked this restaurant for its location and the quality of the food that it serves.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent and Great Princeton GemGreat Princeton restaurant for all occasions or just a good meal.

We recently had two big family events there and both the food and service were spot on. While I wouldn't say this was a "kid's" restaurant, they have always been welcoming to our children.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDoubtless the best restaurantDoubtless the best restaurant in Pinceton for food and wine list. The wait staff can be very hit or miss though.12/22/2012 12:00:00 AMWe were a party of five, withWe were a party of five, with an early reservation. Our waitress was extremely thoughtful and we never felt rushed, although by the time we left there were no seats available. Food was excellent and what impressed me at the end (after we had paid) was the waitress came over with another bottle of sparkling water (we had consumed quite a few bottles) to top off the glasses.
Truly a neighborhood gem. A grand place to celebrate in.12/1/2012 12:00:00 AM
